Most children know the actor Stefán Karl Stefánsson, if not as himself then at least as Robbie Rotten. Stefán Karl lives in the United States, plays The Grinch, has four children and sometimes misses Iceland and working in LazyTown.
Where do you live now?
“In Los Angeles, California, USA.”
Do you miss Iceland?
“Yes, sometimes I miss Iceland. Especially in the summer, because that’s when I liked going fishing and being out in nature.”
The news has told us that you played The Grinch who stole Christmas – what was the funnest part and what was the hardest part?
“Sure, that’s right. The funnest thing about it is that when I was little, my dad and mom read the story to me, and now I tell the same story in front of hundreds of thousands of children and their families in the United States. What can be difficult is that I play the show 15 times a week in 5 different cities so I have to travel a lot and then I’m away from my family.”
Do you have many children?
“I have four wonderful children. Brieti, 15 years old, Elína, 9 years old, Júlía, 4 years old and Þorstein, 3 years old.”
There is an effort underway in Iceland against bullying. You have long fought against bullying. What can one do to stop bullying?
“It’s great to hear that there is an effort going on.” In fact, I think we should always be in an effort, it is an eternal task for us to be who we are, ourselves. The best way to stop bullying is to report it. Talk to their parents and the teacher, the principal and those who are older and in charge. Then they react in the right way and it is possible to help both the victim and the perpetrator at the same time. So you can also go to the rainbow born website and other good sites and received information about further assistance. The worst thing you can do is not tell anyone.”
Do you miss Robbie Rotten, Stephanie and Sportacus?
“I miss working in LazyTown and often think about how much fun it was to work with these wonderful people. Stephanie and Sportacus are my good friends and I am lucky enough to know Robbie Rotten very well too. But it’s also a good idea for anyone who misses them to just put the DVD in the device and you’ll recover quickly.”
Do you always practice acting? How do you exercise?
“The best practice is to work on being an actor. However, it is important for actors to stay in good shape, exercise, eat good food, read a lot and keep up with what is happening in life. Go to the theater, watch movies, especially Icelandic movies and those that are close to you. The most enjoyable exercise is to look at the people around you, young and old, and see how life goes on.”
